How much do you typically tip housekeeping? What factors influence your tip? Length of stay? Size of room? Interaction with staff? Hotel brand? I only started traveling for a few years ago and I don't think my parents tipped housekeeping when I stayed with them at hotels as a kid, so I don't have much of a point of reference. And, with guilt and shame, I must admit this is something I often forget to do, especially if I do not see housekeeping staff members during my stay. However, if I don't see them and if I have no reason to think about them, it probably means they are doing a great job. From what I understand, many housekeeping personnel work within hurried time restraints for each room, often are paid near minimum wage, and are (at least in my hometown) often faced with having their positions outsourced to third-party vendors, so if I am satisfied this is a situation where I will leave a tip. I just don't have a clue what's appropriate.
